Parklife resell one-off tickets reclaimed from ticket tout operations
The festival offers fans one last chance to grab tickets
Parklife Festival has today announced that it will be doing a one-off resale of tickets for next month’s event.
A number of reclaimed tickets have been collected by the festival from ticket tout operations and failed payment plans which will now be available for one final time tomorrow.
The limited sale opens at 10:AM on Thursday, May 12. As part of Parklife’s continued efforts to protect fans from ticket touters and secondary ticket markets, the resale highlights these ongoing issues within the music scene.
Parklife’s anti-tout policy saw the festival work alongside the Great Manchester Police to "combat the rise in fake or stolen tickets that are being re-sold to unsuspecting victims."

To fight back against touters and over-inflated ticket prices post sell-out, Parklife will now put a number of weekend and Sunday tickets back on the market for fans.
“We recognise that, for an event such as Parklife, there are many people who will be unable to get tickets,” said the Greater Manchester Police Superintendent, Graeme Openshaw.
“Unfortunately every year we deal with unsuspecting victims who buy tickets from touts and get ripped off because the ticket turns out to be a fake or stolen.

“Our advice would always be that if you don’t know where the ticket has come from and don’t know the person who is selling it to you don’t be tempted to buy it,” he advised.
Parklife Festival is set to go ahead across two days this year, between Saturday, June 11, and Sunday, June 12. In January, the festival announced a number of new names lining the 2022 bill including Tyler, The Creator, Jamie xx, Four Tet, PinkPantheress, Bicep, and more.
